The most qualified home technology integrators in North America choose their favorite products of 2022.
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 27, 2023) – The Home Technology Association (HTA) announced the winners of its inaugural HTA Product of the Year awards today. These awards are chosen by HTA Certified integrators—the most qualified and professional home technology integrators in the United States and Canada that have passed HTA’s unbiased, third-party certification program.
“We are excited to bring an industry awards program where the winners are selected by integrators. The HTA Product of the Year Awards are chosen by HTA Certified home technology integrators who have extensive hands-on experience with these products and brands,” says Josh Christian, CEO of the Home Technology Association. “We believe other integrators and even end users will benefit from this knowledge, which comes direct to you from the experienced installers on the front lines of the home technology industry.”
The HTA’s Product of the Year Awards is open to manufacturers and service providers who are HTA Supporting Brand members. These vendors stand behind the HTA’s mission of bringing integrators and architects, interior designers, and builders together early for collaborative, mutually beneficial relationships. HTA Supporting Brand members submitted products in predefined categories and HTA integrators voted on their favorites.
HTA Certified dealers were very opinionated about the performance of these award-winning products. Read what they had to say here.
